April 2015 Income

April isn’t historically one of the higher paying months with only 5 companies paying. I did receive a $36.23 special dividend from TROW, which helped. You’ll note that this wasn’t automatically reinvested as my dividends usually are. I guess that is just a consequence of the special dividend.

My quarterly GE dividends are also not quite as high as they will be shortly. My latest GE purchase happened after the ex-dividend date so I was not able to get the full amount. I’ll be getting around $95/quarter with GE’s current payout but was only able to receive $47 this time.

I received $160.89 in dividends for April 2015 vs $89.10 last April. The really cool thing is that my total dividends received in 2015 add up to $1157.82, more than I received in the entire year of 2013 and nearly half of what I received last year. (And we’re only through the first quarter!) The remainder of 2015 is shaping up to be even stronger.

    Happy to see your April passive income moving along. Sure it’s not the biggest dividend paying month but there’s still nice YOY progress. We seem to have GE and KO in common. I’ll be posting my dividend income soon. Thanks for sharing.

      Hi DivHut, I’ll have to take a look at your portfolio and see what I still need to pick up! Looking forward to your dividend income update soon. The YOY progress is always fun to watch. Take care.

  4. Good luck going forward. Your portfolio is growing nicely. I happen to like the GE purchase. I hope you do well with it.

    Keep cranking,

      Thanks, Robert! I bet you liked my AT&T purchase too. In fact, I just got my first dividend from T, $47, very nice, but paltry compared to what yours must be! It’s been good to find some nice value still out there. Take it easy!

  5. They all add up. Keep piling it into the stack. It does not matter where you start-It only matters where you end. Good luck.

    Keep cranking,
